Former Barcelona star investigated for sexual assault

Dani Alves, a former defender for Barcelona and Brazil, is reportedly being investigated for a sexual assault complaint made by a woman in a Madrid nightclub last month, as reported by Sky Sports.

Dani Alves, a former defender for Barcelona and Brazil, is reportedly being investigated for a sexual assault complaint made by a woman in a Madrid nightclub last month, as reported by Sky Sports.

The court in Barcelona issued a statement saying that it has initiated procedures “for an alleged crime of sexual assault as a result of the complaint filed by a woman for events that allegedly occurred in a nightclub in Barcelona last month.”

A court spokeswoman told Reuters that although Alves was not named in the statement, he was the subject of the case.

A court representative stated that an inquiry into the case was ongoing but that no further information was available.

According to reports from Spain, a woman who was out with pals in late December 2022 has accused Alves of inappropriately touching her.

Responding to a request for comment from Reuters, Alves’s representative stated the player “vehemently denies” the claims. This season, Alves will be playing for Pumas UNAM in Mexico.

In an interview with Antena 3 last week, Alves claimed to have been at the club with other people but denied engaging in inappropriate behaviour.

He explained that he was having a fantastic time and not bothering anyone while dancing. “I dont know who this lady is… How could I do that to a woman? No.”

When Alves captained Brazil’s World Cup team in their early December match against Cameroon in Qatar, he became the country’s oldest player in a World Cup game.

With 43 awards earned in club and international events, he also holds the record for most overall.

With Barcelona, he won the Champions League three times, as well as the league, cup, world cup, and super bowl.

In addition, he had previously played for Sevilla, Juventus, and PSG.
